[applause] >> his vision is not greatness in america's navy or military. his vision is to cut our military spending bay trillion dollars. and by the way, a trillion dollars in cuts would cost about 41,000 jobs here in florida. and think of all the businesses that depend upon those jobs. it's extraordinary but the president's alleged keeps getting smaller and smaller and smaller. not just for the
